One of the fastest-growing sectors of the cosmetic industry is permanent makeup. There are many reasons why this procedure may appeal to people. The process, also called cosmetic tattooing, can be a solution for those who have physical ailments that prevent them from effectively applying makeup. This is also a useful procedure for those seeking additional color and definition for the eyes, lips or brows.

Permanent makeup involves adding pigment to the skin layer. The procedure is much like getting a tattoo, where a needle applies coloration by penetrating the skin. Like tattoos, it is absolutely important that the practitioner practice proper sterilization and technique.

If you are the type of person where your skin type causes makeup to run, if you have motor skill issues due to arthritis, if you have vision problems, or if you wish to cover up skin imperfections, then permanent makeup may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
